Intercultural Pragmatics

Intercultural Pragmatics | Pragmatics-Discourse Analysis | Scoop.it

Aims and Scope

Intercultural Pragmatics is a fully peer-reviewed forum for theoretical and applied pragmatics research. The goal of the journal is to promote the development and understanding of pragmatic theory and intercultural competence by publishing research that focuses on general theoretical issues, more than one language and culture, or varieties of one language. Intercultural Pragmatics encourages ‘interculturality’ both within the discipline and in pragmatic research. It supports interaction and scholarly debate between researchers representing different subfields of pragmatics including the linguistic, cognitive, social, and interlanguage paradigms.

In addition to the paper section, our "Forum" includes interviews, debates, rebuttals, and research statements from leading theoreticians and researchers. The intercultural perspective is relevant not only to each line of research within pragmatics but also extends to several other disciplines such as anthropology, theoretical and applied linguistics, psychology, communication, sociolinguistics, second language acquisition, and bi- and multilingualism.

The journal makes a special effort to cross disciplinary boundaries. It intends to be a forum for researchers who are looking for new tools and methods to investigate human languages and communication to better understand the role of pragmatic competence in language acquisition and the process of communication. The editors, editorial board members, and the publisher are committed to producing a journal that is provocative and open to new ideas.

We are especially interested in featuring articles and research papers that

address major issues of pragmatics research such as communicative principles, explicatures, implicatures, role of context, semantics-pragmatics interface, and so forth,
explore the implications of pragmatics research for theoretical developments and practical applications in the fields of language acquisition and intercultural communication,
analyze the ways in which language is both shaped by culture and is the medium through which culture is created,
focus on the use of varieties of one language, including the investigation of lingua franca from a pragmatic perspective,
discuss language use and gender differences in the context of cross-cultural interaction,
describe the meaning and implications of interculturality and analyze the reasons for cross-cultural misunderstandings,
study the nature of interaction between native speakers and non-native speakers and bi- and multilinguals,
investigate the effect of dual language and multilingual systems on the development and use of pragmatic skills,
examine the teachability and learnability of pragmatic skills in instructional environments.

Concept Map Assessments

Concept Map Assessments | Pragmatics-Discourse Analysis | Scoop.it

Concept map was developed by Joseph Novak based on the cognitive theories of David Ausubel (Assimilation Theory) who stressed the importance of prior knowledge in order to gain deep learning on new concepts. So by understanding what you already knew, and relating new concepts to what you knew, meaningful deep learning can easily occur.

Skills for Significant Properties: Debating Pragmatics and Philosophy in an Area of Digital Curation \Grace, S., Anderson, S., & Lee, C.A.

 

PROCEEDINGS of DigCCurr 2009

Epistemology -

 

Epistemology is the branch of philosophy concerned with knowledge. Social epistemology, in particular, can help to describe the social dimensions of information. The content of digital objects conveys knowledge as intended by the creator.

Librarians and archivists have not always had subject skills to

verify or warrant the reliability of information conveyed in materials they manage, as opposed to their authenticity. In the digital domain, the respective contexts of the creator and that of the user can be far apart unbound by ties of culture, intellectual

parity, time or space.

 

Conceptualization -

 

Digital humanities (or humanities computing) as a discipline provides a methodological focus for studying the outputs of human creativity. It also has an understanding that increasingly computers are used as ‘venues of representation’ rather than just as computational machines. As people become more adept at using technology to create digital forms of representing information and meaning, curators require a similar familiarity with the possibilities of human interaction with such forms. Content modeling, visualization and other forms of conceptualization inform the description and understanding of digital content, and can offer entirely new approaches to the reuse of data.

Clan – Corpus » New Series: Yearbook of Corpus Linguistics and Pragmatics (Springer) | Pragmatics-Discourse Analysis | Scoop.it

The series intends to address the interface between Corpus Linguistics and Pragmatics with a special focus on the theoretical study of language in real contexts. The volumes will especially welcome contributions with new theoretical approaches to the analysis of specific languages, to multimodal corpus analysis, and to the pragmatic implications of the interactions between different types of speakers.
